Before "talkies," silent films were never truly silent. Talented musicians played along, using diminshed chords for extra tense moments and joyful major triads at happy endings. Head to Real Art Ways on April 29-30 and experience a modern-day twist on the tradition, with electric cellist Gideon Freudmann providing live, original accompaniment to "Sherlock, Jr.," a classic 1924 silent comedy by Buster Keaton (pictured).
